administration. after all, harry truman was franklin roosevelt's last vice president. most historians of the new deal stop typically in 1938 or 39. 38 was the year of the last major new deal piece of domestic legislation passed. the fair labor standards act that gave us the minimum wage and a 40 hour week. 1939 of course was the year the second world war began in europe, and some historians of course go as far as 1945, tearing through the age of roosevelt himself. the great historian david kennedy does that in his book, freedom from fear. but i thought to continue through to the truman administration, not just because harry truman had been part of the roosevelt era, but because by continuing up until 1952, 53, we can see some features of modern reality that might have remained somewhat obscure it to in particular. the first concerns the layering of fear in american life. now, fear is generated by circumstances that go beyond those of ordinary risk. life is full of risk. we buy a home, we hope it goes up in value. until recently we always thought it went up in value. we married. half of marriages
